House with rotating terrace

August 4, 2019

Quadrant House is a house in Poland that may seem at first look simple and ordinary, but don't be fooled. We present you a modern home with a terrace that can be rotated to follow the movement of the sun.

 

This interesting design allows owners to set up a terrace in front of a room that they want to protect from too much sun or to move it and provide higher penetration of natural light.

 

 The system it self was created and built by Comstal, and the design includes special hinges and rails that rotate the terrace. The system that runs the terrace is fully automatic, but can also be controlled manually.

It is equipped with safety sensors that stop movement if the terrace meets any barrier.

 

The second type of sensor responds to the movement of the sun and provides shade and ventilation to the exposed rooms. The terrace is also equipped with blinds that provide additional protection from the low sun.

 

The "Quadrant House" consists of two main volumes, which are set at a 90-degree angle,forming an extremely private space in the yard, protected from street views.

 

How much home owners value privacy can be noticed by the fact that there is no window on the side of the house that faces the street.

 

The roof is designed to satisfy the wishes of the owner, but at the same time to comply with legal regulations.

 

As a result, the original design was created that included a flat roof on one volume of the house, while the other volume was covered by a sloping roof that acts as a gable when viewed from the street, looking straight from the garden, just as the owners like.

 

This modern 558-square-meters home was designed by KWK Promes, which boasts interesting mobile home project designs such as Safe House. Interior design is due to the company Pulva from Poznan.
